We compute the fourth moment of Dirichlet L-functions at the central point for prime moduli, with a power savings in the error term. 
The Fourth Moment of Dirichlet L-Functions for the Rational Function Field
We study the moments of the Dirichlet L-function when defined over the polynomial ring over finite fields. We find an asymptotic formula to the fourth moment of the central value of Dirichlet LExpand
The second moment of quadratic twists of modular L-functions
We study the second moment of the central values of quadratic twists of a modular L-function. Unconditionally, we obtain a lower bound which matches the conjectured asymptotic formula, while on GRHExpand
Upper bounds for the moments of derivatives of Dirichlet L-functions
In this paper, we give certain upper bounds for the 2k-th moments, k ≥ 1/2, of derivatives of Dirichlet L-functions at s = 1/2 under the assumption of the Generalized Riemann Hypothesis.
Twelfth moment of Dirichlet L-functions to prime power moduli
We prove the q-aspect analogue of Heath-Brown's result on the twelfth power moment of the Riemann zeta function for Dirichlet L-functions to odd prime power moduli. Our results rely on the p-adicExpand

Lower Bounds for Small Fractional Moments of Dirichlet L-Functions
